Our Vision:

Thriving American Cities

From Richmond, California, to Providence, Rhode Island, many cities across the nation continue to face significant economic challenges. These cities – and the people who live there – are essential to the nation’s economic future. With the right leaders, collaborating partners, new solutions and bold actions, these places and their people can achieve economic turnarounds and prosper.

Planning & Implementation

We partner with elected local leaders in economically challenged communities to develop and implement recovery strategies.

Peer Learning

We facilitate opportunities for local leaders to connect and share insight, experience, and challenges with their peers in other cities.

Knowledge

We conduct research to provide local leaders and state and federal policymakers with information they need to adopt policies that foster economic revitalization in economically challenged cities.

Success Story

A Cross-Cutting Approach in Cleveland Heights

Cleveland Heights, Ohio is an inner ring suburb of 45,000 residents that has lost nearly 10% of its population since 2000. Working with the city manager, the Network provided advice on how the city could best facilitate redevelopment of a failing, privately-owned, 65-acre mall, practical support for better using technology and data to drive code enforcement, and a strategy for the launch of a partnership with a community development corporation to drive neighborhood revitalization.
